    HANDUP STORIES

    Meet the Team Series | John

     

    For the first time EVER, we want to introduce you to the team here at Handup. We figured that after 5 years, it's time you meet the faces behind the Friday Cocktail hours, Monday Mashups, new glove day packages, all the wild designs, and (hopefully) timely & kind emails you may or may not have received over the years. It's the kick-off to telling you who we are. 

    This week, we'd like to introduce John, our Accountant!

    One Embarrassing Story? In 8th grade, I went to after school weight training at the high school gym. Before we started I was cleaning my glasses and snapped them in half. I tried to put the together with a piece of tape because I literally cannot see without them, but it didn't work. So I made my mom go on a wild goose chase when it was over to find the same glasses that day.

    Dirty Gloves. Clean it up?? (Pretty sure Orbit Gum won't care we used that)

    Pictured above is a pair of ALL WHITE Handup gloves dirtied by about 2 months of riding (Twice a week to be exact.. we aren't trying to be race ready or anything). The reason we said "the above pair" is because, the two images are ACTUALLY the exact same gloves. 
    The image on the right is the same pair of gloves, after it's day at the Spa A La Kitchen Sink. After a small lather of washing detergent (we recommend Tide due to their incredible 2018 Super Bowl Commercials and nothing more), these gloves took a 5 minute soak-n-scrub in warm sink water. They were then left to tan in the sun! They can be left anywhere to dry but the sun provides all that Vitamin D for an A+ glow-up. 
    In sincerity, warm water, a scrub, and allowance to air dry is all our gloves need to get a nice clean! And quite frankly this is what your gloves look like regardless of whether they are all white or not. It's good to do this regularly to remove dirt from the palm (gross..) degrading sweat from the seams (very gross), and Snot from the terry cloth thumb (Ultimate GROSS!!!). 
    OR, you can simply toss it in the wash with your other riding gear and allow them to air dry. This what we call the "Easier method."

    HANDUP SNOW | The First Skiing & Snowboarding Gloves with Party Palms!

    Another day, another badass glove for a whole new hobby. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we love bikes but we also love getting out and exploring the world in new ways! For that reason, what started in cycling has expanded to golf and NOW, Snow Sports!!

    Handup Snow was born from our out-west upbringing and recent, personal re-entrance into skiing and snowboarding. We spent a LOT of time on the slopes growing up and have since, reignited the passion for shredding!

    So now, we offer Handup Snow and you can expect the same high quality and low prices you’ve seen from all of our other product lines! Our first line of snow gloves were purpose built for spring skiing, minimalist backcountry skiing and park days, even though most of our snow and ski board athletes use these down into the 20’s! 

    Grab a set and keep those hands warm!!
